We must not procrastinate in choosing to serve the Lord-Joshua 24:15 (KJV) And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
This message was preached to the people of Israel in the time of Moses, and is still preached to believers across the globe even until this day. The message is; "Do not procrastinate in choosing to serve the LORD your God". It does matter which god you choose to serve. It's either the devil, or Our God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The LORD wants us to choose Him, and choose him quickly above all else. If we choose to serve another god, or ourselves, the same is choosing to serve the devil, because one cannot be saved if we choose to serve anything other than God himself. Salvation is only obtained by the blood of Jesus, who died on the cross at Calvary. It does no good to procrastinate in choosing to serve Him. The time we have on this earth is borrowed. The miracles, change, and growth we can experience, and are meant to experience is too great, and your decision should not be postponed. Our days are numbered. We only hurt ourselves when we delay in choosing to serve the LORD.
The vision spoken of in this verse is one that was a vision of the LORD given to the people of Israel concerning the consequences of corruption which ends in condemnation; He instructs His Children, the Church, that even though it may seem to take too long for man (in our minds/hearts we may think God is procrastinating), yet, it will surely come to pass, and it will not be late. God does not take His time to fulfill His vision for our lives. Everything He does is perfect. He does not procrastinate when He wants to do something. When there is a miracle, or event that He promises to His Children, or Church, we can rest assured that it will be done, and it will be done on time.
In this passage of the Bible; we very clearly see the parable that the LORD calls out to a chosen people to come, taste, and see the blessings that He wants to pour out onto our lives. His Word is food to our souls. However, if we procrastinate to go to Him, or choose to serve Him, he is forced to go out and find others whom are poor, disabled, sick, and blind, so that they may benefit of all the blessings that He has to offer to His chosen Children. The blessings are so great, that they must not go to waste. We lose out on all the blessings meant for Us, when we procrastinate in choosing to serve the LORD.
If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your exclusive LORD and Savior, now is the time to make the decision to turn yourself over to Him for salvation. The LORD says here, to anyone who will hear and take heed in this verse that He has heard your cry in your heart, and has accepted to hear your cry out to Him, from the bottom of your soul for salvation. He has provided a way, and solution to save your soul from eternal damnation. The only thing He asks here, is that you do not procrastinate in making the choice to surrender your whole being unto Him for salvation. He wants to begin to feed your soul with His Word, and bless you abundantly so that you will not have need. He wants to fulfill His plan for your life. So many people realize that although they seek success in material things, fame, other gods, or lifestyles, something is still missing. The LORD is calling on these souls to have faith in Him as LORD and Savior, the creator, and take His hand. Let Him show you what it is that you are missing. Do not delay in making this decision. If you feel the Spirit of the LORD tugging on your heart, do it for your life, and most importantly your soul, by accepting His free gift of eternal life in heaven and glory with Him. Amen.
What this verse is saying is that no one can procrastinate forever-meaning, that our days are numbered. Time on earth will end. Once the Bible prophecies are fulfilled, the end of this world will come. Heaven will descend to this earth once the earth is completely destroyed by fire. The LORD will do this. We need to make a decision while we still have life, and breath in our lungs, to accept the LORD as our one and only exclusive LORD and Savior, and serve Him in Spirit, and in truth.
If we read on, we see:
7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets. 8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. 9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. 10 And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. 11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
In this chapter, we see that the Holy bible is food to our souls. When we begin to read it, at first it is sweet like honey. Once we ingest it, it falls into our stomachs as something that is difficult to digest, because to serve the LORD requires one to make sacrifices. We must be disciplined, and deny ourselves of the worldly pleasures, the desires of the flesh, to serve Him in Spirit and in truth. At first, this is hard for a person to digest. But, once we trust and accept His will, His power, and His truth, to live by it, we begin to see how His Spirit is poured out into our lives enabling us to be used as His vessel. An instrument of God, to speak unto the nations, in languages that we are not humanly familiar with, and before kings all over the earth.
I hope this study is as much a blessing to you all as it is to me, and may we all continue to stay in His word, and allow God to bless our lives and use us further each day as we grow in Him. May God bless you all, stay in prayer and find a place of worship so that you can continue to grow and serve the LORD your God with all your heart, mind, spirit, and soul. Amen! God's speed be with you!
Jesus is the author of life..taking back the souls..one member at a time..
